Para acceder salta un video con Login obligatorio, no estoy segura de que sea cosa del material, sino que parece más bien que el enlace está corrupto.

The music is appropriate for the context of the video.  You give background knowledge along with current ways to use WebQuest.  I like the transitions you use to each slide and the way you have separated your content into sections.  The content is useful.  You explain WebQuests, give examples to help convey your points, and explain how to present information to students.

The use of screencast complements the information presented in the video.

Is there a written version of this video so that people could refer to that as well?  It would be nice to have that information there to complement the video.  Also if you could have a picture of the author at the beginning, that would a way to the participants to connect to the author.

I would rate the ease of use a 10 out of 10 after spending about 9 minutes watching and listening to the Webcast presentation/quiz on Camtasia.   The music during tranistions and the images, like the Wordle are a nice addition to keep the viewer enaged.  The history of Webquests and application was helpful as reminders of this "old" technology tool (it is old coming form 1995, right?)  :)

I also thought the small chunks of lecture and illustrations broken up by quizzes is a nice way to review and learn the who, what, where, when, why and how of Webquests. I even had a chance to look at my answers, and if they were wrong, I could re-watch and listen to the video segment.  I would use this is a class with pre-service teachers for sure, or as a nice addition to a website on tech tools for teachers!

Great job with the video and presentation of your STAIR.  The presentation did a great job of showing the creation and utilization process of webquests.  I have started using them in my classroom and with the use of your video I should be able to start working on creating my own.  Your presentation of the material in both video and verbal formay is nice for learners and then you provide time for them to check their understanding and allow them to review before going forward.  When I first loaded your video I felt that I was watching a professional video for a webquest website.  Thanks for the great resource.

Craig, I think your StAIR project is amazing!  The video is very easy to use and does a great job of breaking down the different sections of a WebQuest all the while reminding the audience that their audience when creating a WebQuest is their students.  I think the quizzes would be a great way to help keep students engaged and work very well in your project, but since the audience is other teachers, I wonder if it's really necessary to test to see whether they are learning but it's a great demonstration of how quizzes can be used in this type of project.  There's one main section in the video where the talking seems to go on for much longer than the other parts and I was wondering if there may be something else you could put in there besides a screen shot of the website to help keep the audience more engaged throught that large section.  For example, you may be able to include something like presentation slides that cover some of the main topics that you were discussing during that time.  Overall, great job!

Time spent reviewing site: Watched the whole video and took the quizzes.
